Overflow Error: Checks The Length Of A Cell Entry

Jul 30, 2007

I'm trying to run a piece of code which checks the length of a cell entry and if it is over 100 characters long it deletes the value. The code is as follows:

Sub Macro1()
If Len(Cells(1, 1)) > 100 Then
Cells(2, 1).ClearContents
End If
End Sub

The string which is causing the error seems to be 255 or more characters long. Any ideas how to tackle the "Overflow" Error?

Macro For Data Entry That Checks For Duplicate Record

Dec 31, 2013

I have a spreadsheet that uses a Form for Data entry. Each record has ID, Name, State, and about 20 more columns of information for each ID.

The data entry is working well.

What I need now is to add a check for a UNIQUE ID. If they are adding a new record I need my form to return a message if the ID they use is already in the database. So if they enter XXXXX and that is in the file already - they should get a message that XXXXX is already in the database and to please enter a new ID.

And once they fix XXXXX to XXXXY then the record is added.

I should add that the ID is stored in column A.

Overflow Error 6

Apr 7, 2008

I have a sub that takes the value in 2 textboxes and creates a profit margin in another textbox. It's a simple sub but it keeps returning the overflow error, and I can't figure out how to fix it.

Here is what the sub says that is causing the overflow:

Sub FindNetProfitMargin()
UserForm2.tbProfitNetProfitMargin.Value = Val(Mid(UserForm2.tbTotalContractPrice2.Value, 2)) / Val(Mid(UserForm2.tbProfitNetProfit.Value, 2))
End Sub

VBA Overflow Error

Aug 13, 2008

I declare a bunch of variables and arrays, mostly longs and doubles, then run a DLL. After that, I redim one of my arrays (2D) to the right size and try to fill in some values. The array is a double and the values are less than one million. On the first element the code breaks and throws an overflow error.

If I choose "Debug", I can then click continue and it finishes just fine as if there was no error. I can see in the debugger that the array is sized properly, has the correct type, etc. I have no idea what could be wrong here. Could it be a memory problem?

Overflow Error In Vba

Mar 6, 2007

I'm experiencing a overflow error in Excel VBA. The operation that causes this problem is (I have very long for loop, but that is correct only this following sentence is causing the problem):

Sheet2. Cells(2, m+4) = Sheet2.Cells(23, m+4)/Sheet2.Cells(25, m+4)

NB: No zero values are involved in this calculation and the problem is caused by long decimal result! I dont know how to get rid of it!!

Runtime Error '6' : Overflow

I have read the other posts on here and swapped, Dim timeinc As Interger to Dim timeinc As Long and Dim timeinc As Double but neither worked. They both make the calculation 0 and I can not figure out why. This macro has worked before and is failing only on this new dataset which I have attached as well.

Overflow Error In VBA Code

Run Time Error 6 - Overflow

May 13, 2008

I've been contracted some work and I was asked to add an additional metric on the report summary page. I have completed adding metric, tested it, and everything works fine. I was asked to put the code I worked on into an updated copy and thats where I get this "Run Time Error 6 - OverFlow" error message. The only difference between the two files is that the data worksheet (where the Summary page gets the info) in the new file has 100 more row of data. I understand that the code may be stuck in a loop, but what would cause this?

A little background on what the file does. Every month the user enters the publication name, whether it is a color or black or white ad, and the size of the ad. The macro then summerizes the data onto a different worksheet (similar to what the results of a pivot table would give you), calculating the revenue for each publicaton (based on b/w x rate + color x rate). The file worked fine until I replaced the old data with the new data.

Runtime Error 6 - Overflow

I am currently trying to develop a code for calculating the value of an asian option using a binomial tree... In running the macro I get a run-time error 6 - overflow message. I have put the code below. note that the code is still under construction - in order to check it I have put in some hard-coded figures. Of course, these should be calculated in the model eventually. The bug is in calculating the "InterO1" value ...

Run-time Error '6' Overflow

Mar 14, 2007

Upon running this code I get an overflow runtime error. This DID work until I rewrote it and I cannot figure out why it does not anymore. Note the highlighted code which produces the overflow. It DOES produce the proper result- but once I click the SUBMIT button it gives me the runtime and points to the highlighted code.

Private Sub btnSubmit_Click()
ActiveWorkbook. Sheets("Rejections").Activate
If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then
ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select
End If
Loop Until IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = True
ActiveCell.Value = txtDate.Value
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 1) = txtWO.Value
If optCD.Value = True Then
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2) = "CD"
End If
If optDVD.Value = True Then
ActiveCell.Offset(0, 2) = "DVD"

Intermittent Print Overflow Error

Apr 10, 2008

I've created a price sheet that I distribute to customers that is very customer specific. I have to add spacing, logo's, borders and highlighting depending on the products being listed. Because of all of this specialization I'm controlling the page breaks and overflow. I have a counter to keep the current line number of the report and another to determine the row within the current page. I've designed my form to have 77 lines per page and I call a pagebreak/overflow routine when I hit line 72 of each page. Works perfectly when I test on my PC and works about 80% of the time when I send to customers, but I have about 20% who have problems with page size and overflow. In working with them I've found that it's not just the printed copy, but also when they print preview on screen. The first few lines of the second page print at the bottom of the first, so the top of page two is cut off. Then 4 lines from page three print at the bottom of two and so on...

Excel 2010 :: Overflow Error 6 - When All Variables Defined As Integers

Jul 17, 2012

I have tracked down an overflow Error 6 to the following line:

dMax = Int(s * DPoints / SPoints)

Where all variables are defined as Integers. The error goes away when I define s as Long, but I don't understand why this should be required since none of the individual variables ever exceed the scope of an Integer (-32768 to 32767).

Strangely, I get the same overflow problem when I type either of the following calculations in the immediate window:

? Int(328 * 100 / 1000)
? 328 * 100 / 1000
? 328 * 100

Note that no variables are defined, so why the overflow problem? Surely Excel/VBA should be able to work with this very basic calculation without any problem, by assigning the appropriate dimension, no?

Is this a known problem with Excel/VBA?

I am using Windows 7, with Excel 2010 (updated from 2009).

Macro To Comment On Cells Based On Formula's (duplicate, Length, No Entry)

Jun 25, 2009

making a macro that will scan for duplicates, length & empty cells.

I have the sample file below that does conditional formatting but it doesnt help as much because I want to show the reason for the highlight's on a comment instead.

sample file : [url]

file that might help out: [url]

checks would be:
column A - duplicates and/or length should not be over 100 characters
column B - duplicates
column F - should only contain 2 comma's(or 3 keywords)
all columns - check if no entries are found(empty cells)

Give Cell A Value Based On Length Of Row (variable Row Length)

Jan 9, 2010

My worksheet contains data with the reaction times on a psychological test. Each respondent in the test has 280 rows in my excel sheet.

The 'perfect' length of the row, is from A to M. When an error is made in the test, the length of the row will increase. So the error length can be A to AA.

For me it is important to analyse the error. So I would like to give a perfect row length, the value 1, and an error row length a value 2.

So, in conclusion:

Cell length = A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B Cof that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 1

Cell length >= A1 - M1? --> Copy A1 B1 C1 (A B C of that row) to Sheet3, and give D1 in sheet 3 the value 2
